Reset the code for the cd player

The stereo was diconnected and when we reconnected it, it asked for the pass code. But the thing is that we dont have it anymore. Is there any way that it can be reset to choose another pass code? Because when it was first purchased there was the option of making our own pass code.

How to reset my sony xr-m510

When you disconnect your battery and then reconnect it again, it disables the radio. This is an anti-theft protection for your car radio.
The enable your radio the activation code is in your vehicle owner's manual. If you do not have this code you need to go to your vehicle manufacturer's service centre and get them to enter this code for you.

The battery was disconnected in my car and now my pioneer detatchable face stereo won't come on... Is there a code for this stereo?

Most aftermarket stereos do not have a reset code that I know of. Check your fuses under the dash.Iif they are found to be good you may have to remove the radio and see if it has fuses on the back of it. Sometimes it is a glass inline fuse between the stereo and the factory wire harness. Sometimes they are blade fuses in the rear body of the cd player itself.

Hello! Codes for car stereo's are not made public, otherwise thieves would have a field day...Take your vehicle to a dealer,...Show proof of owner ship...And via the vin # the dealer will retrieve the code...

There is a way to prevent this from happening...

My clarion CD player in my Nissan Primera P12 2004 will not eject the discs can this be rectified and would it be expensive.


Check first that it is not a single disk stuck inside.

Try pressing repeatedly the eject button on the on dash player while at the same time you start the stereo.

If that does not work you can try disconnecting the car battery to reset the unit, and then attempt again the procedure above.

Remember that you may be asked stereo code after disconnecting battery, have it ready.

If still no luck, then the unit must be removed from the dash to be taken apart, so to remove the stuck disk.

In that case the repair may require replacement of CD drive unit or front panel. When disk does not exject repair done from a local technician may be expensive. Usually better replacing the whole stereo unit.


PS: Here the procedure above illustrated in detail. The procedure is described for home DVD players, but it is the same on any optical unit, including in-dash stereo. Naturally , since the unit is an in-car system, you do not have power cord, but you will need to disconnect battery to reset the system: player system won't eject disk.

Car Cd Player stopped working

Try disconnecting the player & plugging it back in. Before you do this though make sure you have your manual to the vehicle in case there is a code you will need to put in after you reconnect it .
or you could also disconnect your battery for a min and reconnect it . Both reset the stereo

10A fuse NOT blown in Daewoo Matiz. But, nil operation of Philips RC600 Car Radio/CD. This problem occurred after battery reconnected & charged with a good 5 stage electronic charger.

the car stereo had a security reset when the batterry died (it thinks, since the power was disconnectedf and then reconnected, that it was stolen and reinstalled in a new vehicle). you may not be able to fix it unless you remember a particular code or "key" cd that is to be used in such a situation.

Siemans VDO CDR500 Audio player for Vauxhall Astra 1999

Switch off the stereo so that the date and time show on dash. Press and hold the volume button and the AS button together for about 5 seconds. It should now ask you to input the code. Do this by using the numbers 1 2 3 & 4 on the stereo. When the code is entered, press and hold the AS button on its own and wallah, your cd player is up and running
